, john kerry is on the hill for what is expected to be smooth sailing. the confirmation hearing of secretary of state. he began with a spirited defense of the woman he will be replacing and then he got emotional. >> i would take office as secretary, proud that the senate is in my blood, but equally proud that so, too, is the foreign service. my father's work under presidents boat democrat and republican, took me and my siblings around the world for a personal journey that brought home the sacrificed and the commitment the men and women of the foreign service make every day on behalf of america. >> in marked contrast to yesterday when a fiery clinton faced her critics on the hill, senator clinton or secretary clinton was side by side with senator mccain to introduce kerry as the best choice to follow in her footsteps. >> he's a determined and effective representative of the united states. has been as a senator, will be as secretary. >> and things were cordial enough moments ago. senator mccain was still blasting clinton for her testimony yesterday. >> she really didn't answer any

think the interesting thing will be to see whether senator kerry, when he goes to testify tomorrow in his confirmation hearing, whether or not he comes to it with more of a sort of big picture strategy of what he would do within the region. now, it's possible that one reason the secretary didn't have that, is, of course, she's been out sick for a good number of weeks and they have been cons e consumed by the individual incident in benghazi. >> of course, the overriding question that the republican critics have been focusing on is susan rice, the talking points, this is another one of the exchanges with senator johnson and hillary clinton. >> do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened wouldn't have ascertained immediately there was no protest? that was a piece of information that koufcould have been easily easily obtained within hours, if not days. >> senator, when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on -- number one. >> i realize that's a good excuse. >> no, it's the f
, secretary of state will be testifying. the following day john kerry, who has been nominated as the new secretary of state will be coming in to testify and i think those questions that you raised are very important for secretary of state designee kerry, and we have to focus with secretary clinton, benghazi, what she knew, when she knew it, leading up to when security was withdrawn. what happened during the the attacks and after and how we're going to find justice, there is no justice. >> and four months to prepare, senator and i assume she's dotted every i and crossed every t and senator johnson, this was the secretary of state that was blaming a youtube video that we now know had zero impact on this and we do know the ambassador requested extra security that was denied. i don't know what possible answer could she give on this? >> it will be interesting, you're right, sean. she's had time to prepare, but an awful lot to answer for. i mean, why why all of those warnings ignored prior to the attack? what was she doing during the attack and what about afterwards? who is being held to accou
with the secretary. >>> of course less than three hours from now, senator john kerry will be in a nomination hearing for secretary of state. hillary clinton is expected to introduce kerry to the senate committee. president obama picked kerry to succeed clinton after susan rice withdrew her name. soledad. >> john, thanks. >>> an historic announcement happening later today. women will be allowed on the front lines of war. outgoing defense secretary leon panetta and the joint chiefs chairman martin dempsey are set to make the announcement at 1:30 this afternoon. many former service members support the move and say women in support missions have already been drawn into battles in places like iraq and afghanistan and they don't have physical front lines anymore. some serve as military police, others have gone on patrols with ground troops in order to talk to afghan women and children. pentagon correspondent barbara starr is following these developments for us this morning. where is the major opposition to this coming from, barbara? >> reporter: well, good morning, soledad. there are some groups that are
. >> schieffer: you're going to have a pretty important job coming up here shortly once john kerry is confirmed as secretary of state. every indication is that he will be. you're going to have to appoint somebody to replace him. >> i've heard that, (laughs) >> pelley: give us a clue. >> no clues today other than it will be somebody who is aligned with the president's ageneral the, will be a good partner to the president and the majority leader, which is important. i always remind our citizens back theme the main event is not the interim appointee, it's the election of a new senator in the special election. that's what we need to focus on. >> schieffer: i take it will be a democrat? >> it will be a democrat. the. >> pelley: governor patrick, thank you for joining us. we have in the capitol rotunda a very special guest today, valerie jarrett, senior advisor to the president and i day air is the person in washington who has known the president and first lady longest, being a long-time friend of both in chicago. ms. jarrett, great of you to be with us, thank you so much. >> it's a pleasure. it's a
for reelection. against john kerry, but voters by a small margin seen to believed bush would be the better leader. it cannot be said that the vote reflected a favorable referendum on george w. bush's first term. the importance of the communication skills of a candidate cannot be discounted as a factor, however. but all of this misses a different evaluation that merits being taken into account in judging between an income, barack obama, and his challenger, mitt romney. that is the chinks of the second term on too many presidents. 27 of 19 presidents -- only seven of 19 presidents elected to a second term avoid having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country about a 30% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security of economic climate. after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest that the gamble should not be taken. simply, that history into playing with politics might give us pause. so what does history predicted about a second term for barack obama lacks were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office. what are the
introduces john kerry. and that is after her testimony about the attack in benghazi that killed a u.s. ambassador and three other americans. abc's martha raddatz was there for all of the action. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. it was truly a riveting day on capitol hill. we don't say that very often, with secretary clinton. as some have never seen her before. she was at times, combative, charming, disarming and clearly ready for a fight. >> it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> reporter: but when clinton spoke of her four fallen colleagues, the pain, the memories were still raw. >> i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the planes at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers. the sons and daughters. >> reporter: and clinton did not hesitate to shoulder the blame. >> as i have said many times, i take responsibility. >> reporter: but that did little to quiet some republicans, who wanted to know ho

by john kerry. of course he has been nominated to replace secretary clinton. senator bob menendez, senator from knew jersey -- new jersey will wield the gavel have. bill. bill: it is fascinating to see how all of the events of the news ties into not just benghazi but what is happening all over the northern part of africa. what is she expected to say about the war on terror and the pursuit of al qaeda? >> reporter: bill, we expect she will talk about essentially all of the attacks that have been on these diplomatic facilities dating back to the 1970s or 1980s even. essentially how it has been a problem spot for both republican and democratic administrations. she is also expected to take responsibility for what happened in benghazi. here's a sample what her, let's go back to the hearing, bill. bill: mike, thank you. this is senator bob menendez out of new jersey, who is beginning his statement and we would anticipate hillary clinton to follow him. let's listen. >> officially seating members. i want to ask unanimous consent of returning members to allow our prospective members to participate
senator kerry to the committee. we look forward to talking to you then as well. i think there are several takeaways here that are incredibly important. one is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel and we are moving in that direct. the other thing is that the government has clear lines of authorities and responsibility for security matters instead of silos looking more in a horizontal nature and i understand that that is under way. a lot has been said about resources here. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire military force. it seems to me we can protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines and i am concerned when the a.r.b. says that the state department has been engaged for years and a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry out its work and that has conditioned the thinking of some in the state department that it is imperative for the state department to b
praised. while senator kerry has my full confidence, you will be deeply missed. you said in your opening statement, you're determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure and in my view because of your leadership, they are. today we continue the consideration of the advisory review board which found that security was quote grossly inadequate to deal with the attack on benghazi. the mistakes that were made are simply unacceptable. i'm pleased that the state department has gun to promptly implement the board's recommendations thanks to your leadership. i know you agree the massive security failures such as those witnessed in benghazi that cost the lives of four brave americans, simply cannot happen again. i look forward to working with my colleagues on this committee in a searching review of the resources needed and the state department structure to ensure that we do better to protect diplomats and other americans who put their lives at risk each and every day. as chairman of the africa subcommittee, i'm pleased you have drawn for the committee in y
'll be able to welcome you one more time when you come tomorrow to be part of introducing senator kerry to the committee. so we look forward to welcome you t well. i think there are several takeways here that are incredibly important. one is, is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel. and i see that we are moving in that direction. the other one is the changes in the department have clear lines of authority and responsibility for security matters. instead of silos, looking more at a horizontal nature. i understand that is underway. a lot has been said about resources here. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire foreign service. it seems to me that surely we can find the funds to protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines. and i am concerned when the arb says that the state department has been engaged for years in a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry ou
nominee, current senator from massachusetts john kerry. >> we're told that the president will soon sign the nominations. within a few minutes, i believe. john kerry and others. >> and jack lew about to become secretary of the treasury. rand cia chief as well as -- >> chuck hagel. >> you wanted to jump in? >> i guess i could come down in the middle of all of you. i agree with everyone. i think it was liberal speech as well. we talked about fdr all these things have to be seen in context. certainly barack obama is coming to the perhaps end of the reagan revolution compared to what we have had in the past. it was ringing endorsement. selectivism in a way takes on the notion of the takers, that whole idea very ideological. >> what else did you hear that was -- you were talking about thomas jefferson, what other reference did you hear? >> references to lincoln, he uses the declaration -- lincoln's appropriation of the declaration to talk about how we as a nation have to come together. i was very struck by this notion of unionism. these united states of america, not america's one nation
of state, john kerry, and chuck hagel, which he has gone a lot of flak for it, to the secretary of defense? >> those are promising choices. john kerry may finally liberate himself with a push from chuck a goal. they are going to have to take on the military-industrial complex and reduce those mass of weapons systems that were designed for a soviet-peristyle hostility like the f-22 and nuclear subs. they're going have to cut the military budget down from its $800 billion, and get out of afghanistan and iraq. and whether they have the chemistry and the political fortitude to do so, it remains to be seen. but i think they are a better choice than their predecessors. i think john kerry will be better than hillary clinton, who had to be macho all the time. and panetta, chuck hagel will be better than panetta, who was kind of a fill in. and spent weekends back in california where he really wants to retire. there is a little promise there. but again, it requires the resurgence of mass demonstrations in washington this spring to develop a convergent policy from the militarization of foreign-policy
&a with members of the senate, members of the house. now she moves on. john kerry's getting ready to start his own confirmation hearings. >> though, wolf, there was a big 2016 subtext to all of this. if secretary clinton ultimately runs for president, this is not the last we have heard of this, not the last we've heard of that bite, that we ran at the beginning of the piece. and of course, two members of the senate who might run for president as well were asking her questions. rand paul, very aggressive, and pla marco rubio, who was a little bit more subdued. >> less aggressive, marco rubio, than rand paul. so what you're saying is, potentially, if she decides to run for president in 2016, and a lot of us think there's a good chance she will, what she said today on benghazi, the whole record since september 11th of last year, that could come back to, what, play a role in a campaign? >> i would be surprised, if she runs, for that quote, where she says, what difference does it make, i would be surprised if that did not end up in a campaign commercial. a lot of republicans already making hay out of i
relations committee john kerry will not take part in today's questioning. >>> also in washington cbs political director john dickerson. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what impact could this have with the republicans wanting to know whelp what did she know, when did she know it? >> that's the big question firefighter president for president clinton -- excuse me secretary clinton if she some day wants to become president. if she has ambition for the presidency later, she has to answer these questions in a way that don't irritate the central irritation of republicans, which is the response from the administration has constantly been political, that nobody's gotten a straight story and that as developments have come out that have changed the response from the administration that because it was during the campaign season, that and the president and everyone else was answering in a political way, not a substantive way. underneath that, of course, is the substantive question. what did they know before it happened and were they asleep at the switch? >> an
john kerry. eight years later, not one gay question came up. the gay issue never came up as a wedge issue, eight years later. i think that's also a great sign of progress how far this country has come on the issue of -- on the issue of gay rights in to toe, not just same sex marriage, but should gays and lesbians be treated equally under the law, as the president said in this is inaugural address and to add on something joe just said, i'm not sure in 2014 democrats in swing districts will be running away from the president's inaugural address, i'll be curious what the president says in his state of the union address, that's where he gets down to the nitty-gritty of policy descriptions for the country. >> one of the other quick moments, i was thinking about the defense of marriage act, the fact it's coming up before the supreme court and the president gave stonewall unprecedent ed mention in the inaugural address. you had story the other day in the "new york times" about a gay couple, two women soldiers in afghanistan, who needed post-trauma counseling and went -- their chaplains tol
is respected on both sides of the aisle. while your likely successor senator kerry has my full confidence, you will be deeply missed. you've made our country safer, stronger, and in more secure and in my view because of your leadership, you are. the review board found that security was grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place in benghazi in september. the mistakes that were made are simply unacceptable and i am pleased that the state department has begun to promptly implement the board's recommendation, thanks to your leadership. i know that you agree that the massive security detail that cost the lives of four brave americans simply cannot happen again and i look forward to working with my colleagues on this committee in a searching review of the resources needed and the state department structure to ensure that we do better to protect our diplomats and other americans that put their lives at risk each and every day. as chairman of the african subcommittee, i am pleased that you have drawn for this committee in your testimony the links between this tragic incident in benghaz
this has been settled. and senator johnson as john kerry pointed out today didn't know what happened he skipped the intelligence briefing that would have actually given him the answers that he was looking for yesterday. >> megyn: all right, give you the quick final word, mark. >> sure, i used to write these statements at the white house and what you say is, look, we don't know exactly what happened, there are some reports that say it was a protest and other reports is a that say otherwise, here is what we know right now and as we get more details we'll tell you if they had stuck to that basic principle they wouldn't have trouble. they wanted to believe the spin that al-qaeda was decimated, they're not decimated. >> megyn: sadly. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> megyn: up next, serious questions about privacy and the secretary amendment as one lawmaker proposes a plan that would require parents to tell schools if they own a gun and would punish them if they don't. it's coming up in a little bit. new data showing a sharp decline in union membership in this country are the president's o
